How to make money with your Amazon books: Monetising The Amazon madness

Books should be written in a series
Keep your audience wanting more
Do your research
What are they looking for
What is there a demand for in the market?
For example when you go to the market and you go shopping, you may see crowds gather for a particular product
Why that product
Is it the salesman’s pitch
Is it the branding?
What makes them keep sourcing for that product
Notice key things, publicity , the sales man shouts about the product.
If you make your product invisible nobody will buy it
Profile is key
What’s the hook
Why should audiences engage with your product over competitors in the other shelf
Is it positioning.
Which section will you place the product,
Is it use of colours? Design
Who is your customer, what problem are you trying to solve for them
Is it a reasonable price?
What hooks are you using?
Are you using Bogoff offers ( buy one get one free)
Half price deals
What are you offering the customer for their time, for their custom?
How are you engaging them, with your product?
Each product is an extension of your brand
Utilise SEO
Product reviews so you can rank high on the algorithms, good reviews show the ‘ machine’ as I call it that it can make money out of your product.
The more reviews, the better your sales.
The better the reviews are, the higher you rank

Pay attention to niche
The more focussed your product is the more chance it can have of competing or even dominating within the niche.
For example if someone goes to the market place selling trainers where there is a huge collection of trainers they will have masses of competition, yet what if they came selling signature Italian trainers, or a particular design brand of trainers , that there is a lack of in the market, that is a niche. That individual could make a fortune from selling international , designer trainers at low cost commercial prices to local people.

That individual would make a small fortune.

Market research is key as you engage your audience , wether on your blog or your social media sites, find out what appeals to them , what are they looking for? If you find out what their looking for, you find out what they will invest in.
What will make them part with their money?
There are wants, and there are needs?
Pay attention to Google trends what is trending at the moment? What’s hot right now within your niche, and be able to project what may be coming up in the next six months or so.

Abracadabra Snap!

Hunger. we all crave a positive change. An elevation of such. Our mouths foam and clot for different days, for the hope that someday soon, those old habbits that lead to our ruin, will be replaced with new formations. A stronger and a firmer self. It is important to keep in mind that different days will come, yet you must do the work. You must persist. It is less about the talk and more about the planning, action, goal setting, and persistence, when you find a vision that you want to pin to the frame. Small minded people may challenge your concept, do not let the vision be dulled, if it is something you are willing to commit to doing the work for. Opportunity does not seek out the whiner, it is often cloaked and disguised, yet he or she with a keen eye, and the ability to engage their senses will find where a door is closed, the universe puts a path for a window. Wether its your manuscript, the search for creative opportunities, partnerships, or collaborations, be willing to do the work, dont be a blind man expecting you’ll see a block of gold. It doesnt work like that. There are laws of the universe, Karmic laws. You must engage your higher self. Plant the seed, and water it, when your season comes there will be harvest. The problem is at times we have people who expect harvest without seeds, Abracadabra what are you thinking?

Peeling back the covers

Why not try and fail and keep going to learn. Knowledge applied is wisdom, wisdom gives us the advantage in the field of life. Growth comes through the challenges we navigate through around and the lessons we have access to.You must steer, you must drive, you must propel yourself forward with a plan. Bitesized actions and learn from the mistakes you make. So maybe in the past you had a challenge of not being consistent, so you challenge yourself and write the goal down. Design the specifications. What will it take? Who do i need to become? Who do i need to connect to , to make it happen? There is a difference between the story you tell yourself to keep yourself safe, and the lies you tell to hold yourself hostage. There are people who lie so easily to live a lie to themselves is nothing. In peeling back the covers and jumping unto the mattress, who will you find in your bed of life? Will you find that the bed has no springs and it simply collapses? Is there a wolf in your bed like the story of little red riding hood, who is in your bed? When you peel back the layering who will you face?

Clear waters of the Mind

Let courage meet the objective, because it takes boldness to fail or to succeed , but it simply takes boldness to try. To step out of your comfortable skin, your safe zone and apply yourself. People will try and rain their words and project their insecurities and their inferiority complexes on you, but if their lives were so perfect, why do they need to be judging yours. When did you say your life was a postcard for success. When did you say you were the advert to define success, no people who feel themselves lacking, will often compare themselves to you, look at your insecurities try and promote themselves as superior but simply ask them, when was the last time you conquered without me as the subject? Can you validate your own identity without trying to drag me into your confidence issues and your lack of esteem, do you feel you have failed, can you put your binoculars away and watch your boat? The passengers on your ship are drowning, because as a captain, you are not steering. So when people come for you, people who have not taken bold steps with their own lives and their own happiness, ask yourself, is this about me, or is this about you? Is this about all your failures turning into self contempt, because im watching my ship, and although your trying to drag us down, we’ll sail clear into clean and clear waters. Let your courage meet your objective, and believe no matter what someone who is bitter , jealous , and thoroughly inadequate feels, your mind is golden.

Navigating in the literary markets

Hope floats but effort propels.” ― Rob Liano

We speak of hope often,believe with faith we can get there. Yet when we experience rejection for our talents, we condemn ourselves and our misfortune.

No, what are you learning, what have you learned. What is missing, what can you add. The more you fail, the more you’ll learn. It is not wise to set up a tent in hot water, neither is it wise to set up to fail. Yet ask for the whys? What’s missing in your book as a product? Why are they denying you access,look for responses on things like sales, market, then research trends in your genre, utilise kindle spy, or rocket to check out the sales of your competitors. Look at the headlines and the hooks of books that are trending in your niche, who is playing captain in your market place, which authors are selling best, why?what reads, what hooks, look at the promotion for their books, this will both inspire and challenge you.

Dream Track

“It is often when night looks darkest, it is often before the fever breaks that one senses the gathering momentum for change, when one feels that resurrection of hope in the midst of despair and apathy.”  — Hillary Clinton

Night terrors,we all know them so well. The fear of not being good enough, the fear of not measuring up,the fear of imposter syndrome. Sometimes we imagine it’s a big label on the tops of our forehead, and often people can see the madness in our eyes. A different madness, when life has spun the recorder too quickly and all the tape is now squashed. Yet , you must remember as you run in your lane,you are not the only one on the track. You cannot run everybody else’s race for them otherwise you will not qualify, but as you run, as you execute what you have practice d over again in your mind just remember, that you are not on your own. You are not alone in life’s track, you must keep going. No matter how many races you’ve run unfinished, remember that if this is the one,you want,this is the dream you want. You must see it, touch it, taste it,feel it, and try your best not to listen to the heckles from the crowd. It is difficult I know. Sticks and stones right? No. Words can corrupt,erode, disrupt,words are powerful and dangerous weapons, so as you use your words and language to build yourself up, and you face life with steely determination, just remember that the vision may tarry, but it will surely come to pass. But what about you, do you plan to help it, or will you listen to the crowd that are talking the talk, but are not on the field running the race.
